“Chloe Turner thought she was going to marry the perfect man-until her fiancé's plane crashed. And then she got the really bad news: he'd tried to fake his own death to avoid marrying her. Now America's most famous bridezilla (a tag she most definitely does not deserve), Chloe escapes to a remote island to avoid the paparazzi. And right next door is a man who just might be the cure
for Chloe's heartache....
A magnet for wild, complicated women, Max Sullivan is relieved to have finally found someone "normal." Chloe is his girl-next-door fantasy come to life, and best of all, she gets him. With her, he can be himself, a treasure-hunting millionaire who desperately wants out of his sexy but reckless job. But when Chloe's notoriety catches up with them, will their torrid romance make it to the mainland?”

|Crazy for Love (Hqn)|
I just finished this book and It is official, I have an official girl crush on Victoria Dahl! Ever since I decided to get out of my paranormal comfort zone and read het Tumble Creek series (and loved it, review HERE), my reluctance against contemporary romances has been much smaller. Specially when it comes to Dahl’s books, in that case I just rush forward and get the book hehe.
Crazy for Love is a very unusual but very compelling story. Victoria puts her main characters through the ringer and gives such a depth to them that it’s impossible not to care.
In this book we two-for-one in the Romance department. We have the main romance between Chloe and Max, and a secondary romance between Max’s brother Elliot and Chloe’s best friend Jenn.
Chloe is an accountant from a middle-class family with a very normal life. That is until her fiancé decides that the best to end their 2-year relationship is to fake his own death and when people find out, to blame Chloe and label her as too much of a Bridezilla for him to handle. That’s when Chloe’s life spirals out of control and she is plastered all over the media, hounded by paparazzi and basically unable to live her life in peace.
We meet Chloe when Jenn rescues her for a week getaway on an island, away from the photographers pestering her life. But the girls down time takes a left turns when Max and Elliot, the Sullivan brothers, settle in the cabin next door. Neither woman will know what him them…
Max is a treasure hunter, whose life seems to be one huge adventure. However, things are never as it seems and he is actually a man with serious control issues victim of circumstances that just wants a normal life for himself, but seems unable to get there.
Max and Chloe are HOT! But they are also so perfect and cute together. Their interactions and conversations are such a treat to read. Jenn and Elliot don’t fall that much behind, even though they get less stage time, their story is just as great. I hope Dahl writes their story.
I LOVED this book! I read it in one sitting and had a smile through out the whole novel. Dahl’s writing is flawless and hilarious, her characters are extremely flawed, but also adorable and lovable. She has such a knack for writing amazing character driven stories that can’t help but capture your heart and have you hang on her every word. I laughed, I cried and I felt like I knew these people. I can’t read to read more Contemporary Romances from her.
